One of the hardest images for a photographer is a self-portrait. The first shot was set up to look like Tenna was painting Mike’s Hummer Pink. Then she added a painting of her camera. Mike & Clay didn’t think it looked real. So back to the drawing board. She went outside in Florida, in the 90° heat, and made a great big chalk drawing of her camera. Below is a brief video (36 seconds) that shows you the work behind Tenna’s 1st failed attempt at a self-portrait, and her final image that appeared on the card.
Here is the series of images that tell the story in case you don’t like to watch videos.
Below are links to the pages that explain & demonstrate the different aspects of our 2013 Christmas card.
